SHADOW TRUTHS

I saw a crow building a nest
I was watching him very carefully
I was kind of stalking him and he was aware of it 
Do you know what they do?
when they become aware of someone stalking them 
building a nest?  They build a decoy nest
just for you

tom waits

FOR WHAT IT'S WORTH
the story behind shadow truths


there it is again, that crackle
it's dark and it's not the fire ... no
it's something out there and it's big
and it's getting closer, in the trees
over there

like it's stalking us - we can't see it
but it can see us

I'M STEADY


today - it felt real - I gave you air 
I must say you're tame - today
it felt real - I gave you air
I would burn to see you

FOR WHAT IT'S WORTH:  
the story behind I'm Steady


it's all good - I'm steady


a couple of weeks ago, I was surfing youtube
and came across this amazing track w/a single pic
there were no music credits

I downloaded it anyway; imported it into logic and started a simple remix
adding instruments, voices & visual clips I found; launching it

curious and even tormented, I scoured for more info
and found out that the music was of a young French DJ
going by the name of Øfdream and that he had recently committed suicide

his internet presence is/was almost non existent
he only uploaded 8 tracks (that I could find) and this second piece
was one that felt unfinished to me
a more comprehensive undertaking
felt appropriate - more work
worth it

it was my mission - to finish what he started

envisioning collisions
converting chaos

interesting that I found him just as he chose to leave us
every Øfdream track I've heard is brilliant
and we've lost a truly gifted musical soul

SWEEP


the floor you walk on is smooth
there is no ground there
magic begins with blood outside
there are trees with concrete under their roots
but I have passed the tombs of kings

CIGARETTES AFTER SEX



you leapt from crumbling bridges 
watching cityscapes turn to dust
filming helicopters crashing 
in the ocean from way above

got the music in me baby 
tell me why

CIGFIN from Jim Lamarche on Vimeo.






kisses on the foreheads 
of the lovers wrapped in your arms
you've been hiding them 
in hollowed out pianos left in the dark
got the music in me baby
tell me why
you've been locked in here forever 
and you just can't say goodbye


come out and haunt me
I know you want me










words & music by cigarettes after sex
from their song 'apocalypse'
